WIRED For Sustainability: Command technology to achieve true ESG impact

In 2024, the Australian businesses we interact with are hyper aware of two things – firstly, that the choices they make have a wider impact, and secondly, that they must consider the effect on their communities and the environment. 

This awareness comes as a result of Australian consumer perspectives shifting to strongly supporting companies that share their environmental sustainability values, combined with the Australian government planning to enforce mandatory climate-related reporting obligations for the country's largest companies and financial institutions with a proposed start date of July 1st this year. 

In addition, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) metrics like those of the renowned S&P Global have also emerged as pivotal tools used by consumers and businesses to assess a company’s impact and sustainability in more consistent and transparent ways – your ESG ranking can affect everything from consumer preference to business partnerships and investment. 

The current consumer and government push for a sustainability focus is also an opportunity for businesses to work collectively and build collaborative partnerships to bolster our respective ESG efforts, directly and indirectly, as responsible corporate citizens. 

Innovating to Deliver Sustainable Operations

Certis’ Operational-Design First approach sets the tone for how we work with clients to achieve their desired outcomes. Through examining all aspects of their existing business operations, effective and tailored solutions can be curated, with sustainability in mind. 

The benefit is a solution that is built for maximum operational efficiency within your business. You can gain better understanding of what is happening on the ground, ‘see’ and make sense of critical information, and benefit from details that help steer management decisions.  

Operators are then empowered to re-organise workflows, automate tasks, and deploy manpower more strategically for critical outcomes. As such, response and action times can be enhanced, energy can be utilised more efficiently, all of which reap long-term benefits resulting from implementing and utilising technology well. 

We also work with our teams on developing sustainable solutions for the recycling or repurposing of our retired equipment, mobile phones and uniforms to ensure we are positively contributing to the circular economy.

People are Our Priority

Certis recognises our people and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We take pains to ensure equal opportunities for all as part of our ongoing efforts in building up a future-ready workforce that enables our people to thrive today and tomorrow.

We also offer opportunities and individual development plans that allow our team to grow and develop in and out of the workplace.
